VISITORS to Snowdonia national park have seen big cats and found huge paw prints.
Hiker Stephanie Robinson reported a “brown or tawny big cat” on Snowdon’s Pyg Track.
She said: “I heard a growl from a cave. I stayed silent as I didn’t want to attract this wild animal before me.”
A wild camper said he heard squeals at night and saw “golden eyes” reflected in his torch.
A third said she spotted a large, black animal in Pen Braich, about 12 miles north.
She said: “I tried to go near it but it disappeared into the woods.”
Another man spotted a print at a disused quarry.
He said: “It was bigger than my fist.”
The sightings have been reported to Puma Watch North Wales.
